Is `__is_constexpr(p) == __is_constexpr(__builtin_strlen(p))`? i.e.
can we drop the first `__builtin_strlen`? It seems redundant.

So instead, we'd have:

#define strlen(p) __builtin_choose_expr(__is_constexpr(p),
__builtin_strlen(p), __fortify_strlen(p))

Or is there some funny business where p isn't constexpr but strlen(p)
somehow is? I doubt that.  (Or is it that p is constexpr, but
strlen(p) is not?)

(Guess I'm wrong: https://godbolt.org/z/19ffz7vjx)

Ok then.
